MUA Smokin Palette Review & Swatches

Today I wanted to talk about my latest eye shadow palette which i bought recently from J4G. I have secretly adored Urban Decay Smoked palette, so when I saw something similar ofcourse I grabbed it! Little did I know it was MUA’s new Smokin’ palette, the most recent of their dupes from the Urban Decay Line (Smoked Palette). I never had Urban Decay Smoked palette , but from the pictures online this looks as a great dupe . I already own the Naked 2 palette dupe (Undress Mee Too) and the Matte Pallet so this made the perfect addition. 

About the Product :   

After the success of the hugely popular Undress Me Too Palette, MUA are back with another ‘handbag essential’ palette.

The brand new Smokin Palette is the ultimate travel friendly kit featuring ten stunning eye shades in a mix of matte nudes and shimmering jewel tones, complete with an intense smoky black kohl pencil. Each ‘buildable’ matte shade create smooth colour and blendability perfect to apply as a base or a highlight, whilst the intense highly pigmented jewel tones create the perfect twist on a smoky eye effect. Finish your look with a swoop of Black Smoke eye pencil to complete your look.

My Review : 

The palette consists of 10 eyeshadows which are a mixture of matte and metallic/Shimmery  shades, and a black eyeliner pencil. I so wish eyeliner came with a cap.

Matte shades : Glory(nude), Boudoir(nude), Fantasy (dark brown) and Mythical (black charcoal).Shimmery shades, Unleash (inky blue), Ghost, Broken (metallic brown), Icon ( deep purple), Chaos (metallic emerald) and Wicked (grey shimmer).

All in all, a really nice palette. The matte shades are beautiful and highly pigmented, the shimmery shades perform well and blends like butter, and the eyeliner is rich black perfect for smudging and blending out. 

The packaging of the palette is simple. The case is made entirely of plastic and without mirror. It doesnot include applicator instead it comes with eyeliner pencil. Overall its a nice and affordable pallete.

I have been wearing them everyday! Just love them and I will definitely be repurchasing when I need to.It is affordable and has amazing pigmentation , as well as it is a great dupe for high end eyeshadow palette. I would highly recommend getting this , even for people like me, who are neutral eye wearer on a daily basis.

Have you tried this Palette ?? Will you buy it ?? Love to read your comments.

  1. Great ! I donot wear eyeshadows but these days am looking for very natural dewy eyeshades. Like the post although the background is distracting the font but i try hard to read your full post 🙂

  2. I love the Urban Decay packaging and the shades, too. I'm still playing with my Naked 3 and can't believe how gorgeous the colors are. By the way hun, thought I'd bring it up, your content text is somewhat shadowed, which means it's kinda hard to read, not sure if it's been set up this way or just theme issue, but wanted to make you aware of it 🙂 x Donah GiG
